Camping with infants doesn't have to be stressful. In fact, babies are incredibly adaptable. It might take a couple of days for babies to completely adapt to the different sleep environment, but once you have established a routine, they usually sleep extremely well in the tent, especially after a fun day of activities.

Because of you, a bear was killed. You kept making a mess. You kept leaving your garbage on the ground and in the shelter. You kept cooking in your campsite.

Camping is a quintessential Canadian summer activity. There are campgrounds of all shapes and sizes offering a whole host of different activities and amenities from hiking to birdwatching to canoeing. But, come summertime, one of the best amenities you can find at a campground is a beach. Luckily, there are quite a few options for Canadians looking to pitch their tent near a stretch of soft sand.
The summer heat means heading outdoors for barbecues, picnics and patios. Having meals outdoors is one of the best parts of summer, but improperly prepared foods can affect our health. Health Canada states that between 11-13 million people have food poisoning yearly. Ensuring the safety of food can be especially challenging this time of year because of the rising temperatures.
